Repayment Claims for Tax on Interest

Newsletter issue - July 2011.

You may be able to claim a tax repayment from the Tax Office if your bank has deducted 20% tax from interest paid. If your tax-free allowance (up to £9,640 for those aged 75 or more in 2010/11), completely covers all of your income, the full 20% tax deducted from interest received can be reclaimed. Or you may only be due to pay 10% tax on the interest if your tax-free allowance is exceeded with savings income up to £2,440 in 2010/11. This may well apply to older relatives.

Where a tax repayment is due, and you don't submit a self-assessment tax return each year, the tax due back should be claimed on form R40. Unfortunately the R40 form cannot be submitted online, it has to be sent to the Tax Office in paper form. However, you can claim tax repayments for the years 2005/06 to 2010/11 all at once, with a separate R40 form for each tax year. We can help you with this.

To avoid these tax repayment claims being necessary in the future, if you have a low income you can register to receive interest from banks and building societies with no tax deducted. This is done by completing form R85 for each account held.

You cannot use the R40 form if you have a taxable capital gain to report for the tax year. In this case you must register for self-assessment and complete a full self-assessment tax return form. This applies even if you may be due a refund of income tax for the same tax year.
